Oct. 25-29, 2021

Share your best for celebrating Halloween and Fall with others.  Below are three suggested ways that you can share this with us. Prizes will be awarded for the submissions with the most “votes” (likes on social media). The photos will be shared on the Graduate School’s social media accounts for your friends and family to vote.  Submissions are due to Rachel McDaniel at racmcd08@uga.edu by Oct. 29, 2021. Voting ends Nov. 2!

Halloween Costumes

The Graduate School loves to dress up for Halloween! This year, we want you to join us. Share your costumes! Get your lab or study group involved, or dress up your pets!

Pumpkin Contest

We know graduate students are creative. Send us a pic of your best pumpkin designs: carved, painted, whatever suits you.

Decorations (home, lab, etc.)

Frighteningly festive feng shui? Let’s see it. Show us your lab, your home, your office. We want to see your spooky season décor.

Bonus Points

  • +10 points if your costume, pumpkin, or décor centers around your research, scholarly, or artistic work
  • +5 points for school spirit, Go Dawgs!

The Graduate School will follow UGA social media policy in posting submitted images.


Submit your entries to Rachel McDaniel at racmcd08@uga.edu by October 29. “Votes” in all categories will be counted through Nov. 2, and winners announced on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram on Nov. 3. The entry with the most likes across all categories will receive a $50 gift certificate to Downtown Athens.
